Being the Elite, the YouTube series that is partially responsible for the birth of All Elite Wrestling, hit a milestone 200th episode this week with the ultimate clash between Matt and Nick Jackson. Speaking of AEW, their rankings are out for this week, and they pose an interesting question for the AEW World Championship scene.
Over in WWE, however, there seems to be no concept of rankings or determining the #1 contender for titles — whoever asks the champion for a title shot (sorry, “Championship Opportunity™”) seems to get one. We take a look at the absurdity of Seth Rollins getting a WWE Championship match over Kevin Owens, and talk about how WWE could benefit from a ranking system.
Lastly, Big E took home the SmackDown Tag Team Championships for the New Day, who are now one title reign away from tying the Dudley Boyz for the all-time record. In a post-match interview, Big E proves that he’s a national treasure.
